Thank you for your suggestion. I did check on Occipital Release Therapy – specifically, the John Barnes method. There is one practitioner near me. Unfortunately, she charges $160/session and does not take insurance nor is the registered with Medicare. Although the treatment sounded promising, this is not within my budget. The first round of Botox was not helpful at all. In fact, I'm just recovering from a month-long bout of O.N. The constant pain nearly killed me. The second round is scheduled for end of May. I'll do it, but I'm not very hopeful. My neurologist had never heard of occipital release therapy although it is offered by 2 hospitals here in the Los Angeles area.
